Veteran Journalist, Marshall,
Joins Journalism School Staff
By Janet Sack
Opening of the Nuremberg
trials, profile on post-war Ber
lin, accompanying the Royal
Air Force (RAF) on the first
massive bombing raids on
Berlin these are just a few
story assignments covered by
Alan Marshall, associate pro
fessor of journalism at the
Marshall became a staff
member at the School of Jour
nalism this fall. Before com
ing to Nebraska he was head
of the journalism department
at Butler University in Indi
anapolis, Ind. While at Butler
he was also the adviser to the
student publications.

"Newsweek" where he gained
a good share of his profes
sional experience.
During the war he was in
the government service and
worked in New York City for
the Office of War Information
(OW1). He was in charge of
the Swedish, Swiss and Ice
landic news desk and from
there he was sent to London
where he was cable editor and
did features for the British
Irish Republic"
Through the United States
government, "The Irish Re
public," with headquarters in
Dublin, was born. The weekly
paper, put out by Marshall
and his colleagues, eventual
ly achieved a circulation of
nearly 25,000. Because Ireland
was a neutral during the war,
the paper was admonished not
to print anything to criticize
the Irish government and
could not advertise that their
$ -
paper was in existence. Sub
scription came by individual
request only.
While he was in London, he
and his colleagues began to
prepare for the publishing of
two magazines: the French
"Voir" and the German
"Heute." The semi-monthly
"Voir" moved to Paris where
it flourished and finally
achieved a circulation of 400
500,000. Marshall termed
"Voir" a valuable piece of

moved its headquarters to
Munich, it occupied the build

Hitler's propaganda paper.
While he was in Germany,
Marshall covered the re-opening
of Heidelberg University;
the revival of the Arts and
Music Festival in Salzburg,
Austria; did a profile on post
war rebuilding in Darmstadt
and Berlin and covered the
opening of the famous Nurem
ber war trials.
The Nuremberg trials rank
as the most exciting assign
ment undertaken by Marshall.
"The courtroom tension was
unbelievable," Marshall said,
"as the reporters from the oc
cupied countries sat and
looked at the former German
hierarchy who were on trial."
Bombing Missions
While he was in London he
made friends with the person
nel in the British Air Minis
try and was allowed to ac
company the RAF on their
bombing missions. He was
also with the group that went
on the first massive bombing
raids on Berlin. His account
was published in the "London
Sunday Express."

after the war, Marshall con

went to New England where
he taught at Boston Univer
sity and later went into public
After this he became assist
ant to the president of St
John's College and taught in
a seminar. From this he ac
quired a taste for teaching
again and attended the State
University of Iowa and re
ceived his Bachelor's degree
from Columbia University.
In addition Marshall pub
lished four mystery novels be
fore the war. "I've written
very little fiction since the

war ??me of his capacity to
imagine the unreal vanished,
he explained.
One of his mysteries, "The
Hangover Murder s," was
made into the movie "Re.

versal studios, starring Ed

and Constance Cummings.
Marshall has also had short
fiction published in "Esquire"
and the "New Yorker."
Lectures In Lincoln

several times during the past
five or six years.
He will teach three courses
in journalism: the magazine
classes, a foreign news
course, and lecture in the be
